I was so sad to hear about Keith’s passing. He was such a wonderful young man who spent so much of his time mentoring and helping our girls when they played softball. Keith was so patient and caring with all of the girls who played on the team. Such a kind and thoughtful young man.

Although we lost touch throughout the years, we always thought of Keith fondly and the Burgess family, too. Our prayers and thoughts are with Brenda, Jerry and Tiffany. We are so sorry for your loss.

Your friend, Valerie Thompson

So shocked and sad to see Keith’s passing. We knew him as a wonderful young man and someone we spent many hours with and a special person in our heart. So many great times and memories with him and his family. Words cannot express how we felt about Keith. God bless Brenda, Jerry, Tiffany and Keith’s wife and daughter.
